On March 30th and 31st, the 6th grade had the opportunity to visit Kennedy Space Center; this trip is comprised of two distinct programs: the SEA (Space Explorers Adventure) program and the Overnight Adventure.  As part of the SEA Program, the girls rotated through several activities.  One of the stations allowed the girls to try out the trajectory chair simulator, where students learn how to match trajectories of moving objects by throwing a ball to each other. Later, the students worked in teams and had a chance to conduct a space shuttle mission. One team worked inside mission control, while the other team worked inside the orbiter.  Each team completes various objectives and both must work together in order to make the mission a success.  As part of the Overnight Adventure, the students had a chance to meet an astronaut, Al Worden who served on Apollo 15, and ask him questions.  Later that day, we witnessed a historic event in which we also watched a launch, SpaceX’s Falcon 9.  The day’s events culminated with the girls sleeping under the orbiter Atlantis, inside the Atlantis exhibit. On the second day, the students visited the Apollo Saturn V building and did a scavenger hunt to learn about the Apollo missions. Overall, it was a great opportunity and learning experience for them!

Nova Brown, 7th grader, invited internationally acclaimed African dance choreographer, performer, and fitness professional Kukuwa to the Junior High on Friday, March 31st as an extended celebration of Black History. Students performed traditional initiation dances from East and Central Africa, and learned about the cultural and linguistic diversity on the continent of Africa. Kukuwa, also an adjunct professor, enlightened students on ways traditional rhythms and movements in African dance form the foundation of popular music that we listen and dance to today.
